The following Dirty Rice recipe is from SurvivalBlog reader “Monkeyman”. He notes that he often makes this doubled recipe.
- 2 cups brown rice – you can use white rice, just reduce the liquid to exactly 4 cups
- 3 cups chicken broth
- One 14-oz. can of coconut milk, I add a little water to rinse out the can and add it
- Lard, Olive Oil, butter, or your grease of choice
- 2 medium onions, chopped
- 4 cloves fresh garlic, minced
- 2 pounds pork sausage
- Dried Home Grown Sage, to taste
- Add rice, broth, coconut milk to large pot and bring to a full rolling boil.
- Turn heat down to low, cover and let simmer until all liquid is gone and rice is tender. (This is basic rice making; either brown or white)
- In a large skillet add garlic, onions and fry in oil. I add the Sage as the garlic and onions turn translucent and mix it up.
- Add the sausage and cook and chop it all up until it is fully cooked and resembles ground beef.
- When the rice is done, add it to the sausage and mix well combining all the ingredients together. Note: Sometimes the sausage is extra greasy; I dump the whole thing into a large metal colander and let it drain into the skillet with no heat.
Some family members add salt to their own servings, to taste.
